IEEE Standards Association Call for Participation 


The IEEE CIS Standards Committee has two active standards, that can be purchased from the IEEE SA Standards Store.

The IEEE CIS Standards Committee has currently four approved working groups developing future standards:

  • P1849 – Working Group for eXtensible Event Stream (XES) for Achieving Interoperability in Event Logs and Event Streams

  • P1855 - Fuzzy Markup Language Working Group (CIS/SC/FML-WG)

  • P2976 - Standard for XAI - eXplainable AI Working Group (CIS/SC/XAI WG)

  • P2983 - Working Group for Video Games Vocabulary (CIS/SC/VGV WG)

These activities are possible only because of the effort of scientists and practitioners who volunteer their time and work to the development of theses standards.

We need more volunteers! If you have the knowledge and the experience in any of these fields, please, get in touch with us and volunteer your time. Please, email to the applicable work group chair and to me ([email protected]).

As stated in in the welcome from the Vice President for Industrial and Governmental Activites, "To be relevant, we need to develop a CIS Standards Committee strategy to leverage our technical expertise while being demand-driven. We will work with IEEE Standards Association (SA) to drive Standards for AI technology, such as the Consortium on the Landscape of AI Safety (CLAIS), and contribute to IEEE SA Artificial Intelligence Systems (AIS) and IEEE SA P7000 family, focused on AI and Ethics." We need more volunteers to achieve this. If you think that you can contribute, please, send an email to [email protected] AND to [email protected].

Thank you,

Bruno Di Stefano, IEEE CIS Standards Committee


Call for IEEE CIS Organizing Distinguished Lectures 


The IEEE CIS Distinguished Lecturer Program (DLP) aims at serving the Computational Intelligence community by providing stimulating lectures given by distinguished IEEE CIS professionals and scholars. It also aims at helping young researchers (masters and doctoral students) providing suggestions/guidance on their research problems as well as promoting computational intelligence tools and techniques among undergraduate students to make them interested in CIS fields of interest.

Distinguished Lecturers present novel basic and/or applied research results in their CIS sub-field. Their lectures offer insights into the trends and challenges of their CIS sub-field and their vision for the given sub-field. In any given year, selected IEEE CIS Distinguished Lecturers (DLs) have a balanced representation of CIS sub-fields and include representatives from academia, industry and government while spanning different IEEE Regions. The program supports local CIS Chapters by enabling a major Chapter event which can considerably improve a Chapter’s visibility to their existing IEEE CIS members, other IEEE Society members and the wider CIS community in their area. It is expected that DLP events actively seek to recruit new CIS professionals to both the CIS field and to IEEE CIS.

It should be noted that this program is NOT intended as a means to finance speakers for conferences/workshops or symposia.

For more information please visit the organizing distinguished lecturers webpage.


Call for Associate Editors for the IEEE Transactions on Evolutionary Computation


Please note that new positions will become available for joining the Editorial Board of the IEEE Transactions on Evolutionary Computation (TEVC). Candidates interested in applying must submit via email, in a single PDF file, to the Editor-in-Chief of TEVC Prof. Carlos A. Coello Coello at [email protected].

Deadline for applying: 15 October 2022

Notifications: 15 December 2022

Please note that all applications will be carefully reviewed considering several elements, including: prior editorial experience, topics of expertise, and publications record. Note however that all candidates who get pre-selected are subject to the approval of the Vice President for Publications and of the President of the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society. Female candidates and people with affiliations in industry and/or government are strongly encouraged to apply.  For more information please visit the call for IEEE TEVC Associate Editors webpage

Live Webinar

Tiny Machine Learning: Deeper and Wider Machine Learning at the Edge

Date: Wednesday, 14 September 2022
Time: 8:00 AM - 9:00 AM EDT


The “computing everywhere” paradigm (comprising Internet-of-Things and Edge Computing) will pave the way for a pervasive diffusion of Tiny Machine Learning (TinyML) in everyday life. To fully address this challenge TinyML solutions must become deeper, hence encompassing the deep-learning paradigms being the state-of-the-art in many recognition and classification applications, and wider, hence being able to operate in a collaborative and federated way within an ecosystem of heterogenous technological objects. This talk explores the solutions and methodologies to make TinyML deeper and wider by also considering the role of an effective and efficient processing of encrypted-data through deep-learning-as-a-service in an heterogeneous-hardware ecosystem.
